Florida. The land of cruise ships, Disney World, space shuttles, hurricanes and ultra-bronzed retirees. Also the home of several contemporary, cutting-edge art galleries who are not afraid to take the leap and celebrate the phenomenon that is mobile photography. They embrace it as having a substantial and relevant impact on the contemporary art world.
I am pleased, well more like giddy with glee if I am being honest, to have three of my iPhone photographs included in two separate group gallery events for the month of March. The first, “Drive Thru,” was chosen for the Depixtions show at the Orange Gallery in Orlando, which opens March 10th.
Two additional images, “Gelato” and “UFO Refueling Station” have just been chosen to hang in the group show iPhoneography: Updated Visual Dialogs at The Lunchbox Gallery, Miami in the Wynwood Art District. This show opens March 8th and runs through April 7th.
These little successes are definitely motivating me to get out there more to continue my personal dialog via the use of this wonderfully freeing tool that is my iPhone.
